How to Facilitate Your Visual-Spatial Learner at Home

By Teresa Currivan, LMFT, Parent Coach

If your visual-spatial child is at a more typical school that emphasizes traditional learning methods, please know that there is plenty you can do to facilitate their learning at home. These kids never stop learning, and often do their more important work after school and on the weekends (and, yes, sometimes at midnight.)

This article is part of Teresa’s book, My Differently Tuned-In Child: The Right Place for Strength-Based Solutions. In the article, she explains eight things you can do to facilitate your visual-spatial child at home.
